Please share some images of kids, grandkids, nieces, nephews, etc, in this thread. I'll get things started with one from yesterday of my daughter Isabella and her pink ukulele:

Here's one of my favorites of our two oldest grandchildren:

This photo is from 14 years ago. The boy is now a sophomore in college and the girl is a high school senior. Time flies.

This thread could be dangerous.....I have thousands of photos of kids and grandkids.
About the time my first grandchild was born was the time I bought my first DSLR. I purchased an Olympus DSLR from Costco and decided I didn't like it and returned it. I then purchased a Nikon D70 and have evolved from there. The photos of our kids and grandkids that I have taken are my greatest worldly treasure. They bring back such special memories. Here are four that I found today that I especially like and show the family having fun.

This thread has the potential to be very popular and to last forever.

This photo is, without question, the most important photo I have ever made. The baby is my nephew Matthew at ten days old and born about three months prematurely. It's the first photo ever taken of the mother and child together and it was about a week later before either parent was allowed to hold Matthew in their arms. Matthew finally got to go home for the first time five months later just barely in time for Thanksgiving.

The photo was taken at Baltimore's Johns Hopkins Hospital. I printed an 8 x 10, had it matted and framed and gave it to the NICU unit as a "thank you" for everything they did. They first hung it in the NICU room where doctors consulted with parents of children in the unit. Now that a new NICU wing of the hospital has been built, it hangs in the room used by the person who was the lead nurse on Matthew's team to train nurses who are new to the unit. Matthew is now 11 years old and I still send keepers of him to that lead nurse, which she relishes.

For those interested in the post-processing issues, I had to deal with three completely different light sources and the resulting color balances that were out of whack.

I agree!

Excellent photos, Terri, and typical of your family "snapshots", though they are more than that.

I can see why you think so. Excellent job both on the photograph and the processing.

Mike, I love this!! It brings back so many memories of our twin grandsons in the NICU for 8 weeks. I'll have to share some photos of that. I can see why this photo is so special to you. It's really perfect!!!

After 7 straight days of rain, my daughter couldn't take it anymore and hopped in our pool while it was pouring.

My son was born at that hospital. At the time, I was an intern there, the hardest year of my life. I carried around a picture of the ultrasound image of him in utero on the front of my binder, and it kept me going. He's also the reason I became interested in photography. This pic I took of him holding my dad's hand and looking up at him is one of my all-time favorites. They've always had such a special relationship.

My family don't like to pose for pictures, nor do they tollerate me chasing them around with a camera, much. We do get together 2-3 times a year, so here are 3 Christmas gatherings.

2014. Eating and drinking, naturally!

2016. At my son's Emigration Canyon cabin above Salt Lake City. Shot with a remote and the camera bungee-corded to a railing :eek:

Feeling a little emotional this week.....This little guy started high school this week. I bought my first DSLR when he was born. Where did all the years go.
